Whilst advances in biotechnology and information technology have undoubtedly resulted in better quality of life for mankind, they can also bring about global problems. The legal response to the challenges caused by the rapid progress of technological change has been slow and the question of how international human rights should be protected and promoted with respect to science and technology remains unexplored. The contributors to this book explore the political discourse and power relations of technological growth and human rights issues between the Global South and the Global North and uncover the different perspectives of both regions. They investigate the conflict between technology and human rights and the perpetuation of inequality and subjection of the South to the North. With emerging economies such as Brazil playing a major role in trade, investment and financial law, the book examines how human rights are affected in Southern countries and identifies significant challenges to reform in the areas of international law and policy.

’Collectively, the contributors to this thought-provoking collection probe the idea that the regulatory licence for new technologies should be conditional upon respect for human rights and human dignity; and, individually, they highlight a range of issues, themes, and tensions that underline the breadth and depth of this global challenge.’ Roger Brownsword, King’s College London, UK 'This collection gives priority to Global South perspectives, making it a timely and distinctive addition to the field of new technology and human rights.' Therese Murphy, University of Nottingham, UK
